Lost Without You

Melody was never one of those girls who fit in with any groups. She tried to make friends, but it always got worse. They either told her to get out, she's not worth it, or that she didn't belong anywhere. Even her parents said so. Her thoughts consisted of having one special person in her life that would care about her, but she knew it would never happen, and that it was just a dream.

Melody never realized that she had a guardian angel, Mason Jai, who completely cared about her.

But when Melody meets a handsome young lad named Harry Styles, she thinks, "Are my dreams really coming true? Have I finally met someone who would make me 'happy'? Someone who would actually care?" But what if he had to go? Would Mason take over? Is she 'lost without him'?

Who would she fall for? Her guardian angel, or the lad she thought who first noticed her?

7. Uh Oh

Melody’s POV

*Buzz buzz buzz*

Uh oh. My mom is calling.

“Hello?”

“MELODY! WHERE ARE YOU? YOU DIDN’T TELL ME YOU WERE GOING OUT.”

Oh goodness gracious. Not that she actually cares where I’m at. She just wants me to do work for her.

“Well I did leave a little note on my bed. I won’t be home for a while. Maybe ever..” I mumbled.

“What did you say? Your father and I are worried about you. You need to come home now. I don’t want you out anymore today.”

“I won’t be coming home for a long time. I don’t like being home. I’m walking around on the streets, have fun looking for me.”

“MELODY. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE TALKING TO ME LIKE THAT? YOU WILL COME HOME NOW BECAUSE I SAID SO!” My mom yelled through the phone. Did she really think I was going to listen to her?

“NO I WILL NOT COME HOME. I HAVE NO INTENTION ON SEEING YOU OR DAD. IF YOU REALLY CARED IF I CAME HOME YOU WOULD STOP ABUSING ME AND ACTUALLY CARE FOR ME. BUT YOU JUST DON’T. SO STOP ACTING LIKE A CARING MOTHER BECAUSE YOU’RE NOT. I DON’T EVER WANT TO COME BACK HOME. DON’T BOTHER TRYING TO STAY IN TOUCH WITH ME. I’M SAFE WHERE I AM OKAY?” I shouted while tearing up.

I had never disobeyed my mom, but I had enough of her. I didn’t need her abusive self around me any longer.

“You think I enjoy hitting you? I HIT YOU BECAUSE YOU DON’T EVER LISTEN.”

“HA HA HA. YEAH I DON’T EVER LISTEN? HOW ABOUT YOU? YOU DON’T LISTEN EITHER. AND OF COURSE YOU ENJOY HITTING ME. YOU HIT ME ONCE I WALK THROUGH THE DOOR? HOW THE HELL DO YOU EXPLAIN THAT? ALL I EVER DID WAS GO TO SCHOOL, AND COME BACK. DON’T TRY MAKING UP EXCUSES TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER. I HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF THE TWO OF YOU. NOW DON’T CALL ME BECAUSE I WILL NOT BE COMING HOME!” I shouted at her.

“Enjoy your life without your guardians around more then. Yes, we actually did care about you Melody. Your father and I fight often and I guess we just take our frustration out on you.. I’m sorry.”

“I don’t plan on having any communication with you or dad anymore okay? And it’s too late for an explanation. I don’t care if you and dad fought a lot. You made me think of suicide all the time, I felt unwanted, depressed, worthless, the list goes on. So no, I will not go back to the two of you. I’m done talking to you because you just ruined my life. Bye.” I tried saying with an assertive voice.

Once I hung up, I balled my eyes out. I’ve never lied to her about where I was, nor yelled at her.

I can’t believe I did that. It felt good to get it off of my chest, but I do regret disobeying her just a little bit. How did that get the truth out of her though? Putting her in check for her actions.

Harry walked into the room 5 minutes later and I cried into his chest.

“Shh, shh. You’ll be okay. They know now, don’t worry okay?”

“Thank you, Harry. I really appreciate you caring so much about me,” I said through my sobs.

Harry’s POV

I didn’t think she could yell so loud. She was really hurt, and I felt so bad. I couldn’t imagine being on the other end of that call to receive that. It seemed like her mom was shocked about hearing what her and her husband having doing to her. I really don’t like them. I just want to confront them, but I know I can’t do that.

Josephine’s POV

I really liked Mason. He’s so caring and lovable. I can’t get my mind off of him, but I know it’s not good to like him. His feelings for Melody had always bothered me, but I can’t interfere. I would never want to lose him. As I started to think more about it, it upset me. Why did I even let her stand in the way? Josephine, don’t risk your friendship. Just be there for him. Ruining something that may only come around once in a lifetime isn’t worth it. Gosh Josephine, think before you jump to a conclusion. I guess talking to myself always made me feel better.

*ring ring*

“Uh, hello?”

“Hey Josephine! I just wanted to ask if you wanted to hang out today,” Mason asked.

“Oh hi! Yeah, sounds nice. Where at though?”

“Anywhere! I just need to see you,” he said quickly and hung up.

Why did he need to see me now? I hope it’s not bad news.

As I started to get ready, I thought of many different outcomes from this “hangout.” I was afraid of all, but one.

Mason’s POV

Yes, more time with Josephine. I didn’t know if she knew or not, but it was a real joy when she was around. I would get everything off my chest, and she always knew how to brighten up my day. I told her I needed to see her now, but how was I going to say it? What was she going to think after I tell her? With all these thoughts roaming my head, it psyched me out.

*An hour later*

I got Josephine and we headed went to get a meal. The car ride seemed pretty awkward, which was unusual. As if she was hiding something from me.

“Josephine, you’re really quiet.. Everything alright?”

“Of course! I’ve just had a rough start today. So what did you need to tell me,” she said shakily.

“I don’t want to tell you yet. Not in here at least.”

As we slowed to a stop, she turned quickly and said, “Mason, I can’t take this anymore. Just tell me what you needed to say!”

“It could wait Josephine. Don’t worry-”

“No! I need to know now!” She demanded.

“Well too bad, I said I didn’t want to tell you in the car. We have one more block until we get there anyway. Relax.”

I didn’t think she could be so anxious. What was I going to say to her anyway? Now I don’t even remember what I had to tell her. This is what I get for waiting. She’s going to be pissed when I tell her I forgot..

“Uh Josephine.. I forgot what I had to tell you.” I tried saying with a straight face. Well this was great. How could I forget such an important thought?

“ARE YOU KIDDING ME? ALL THIS TIME I WAITED AND NOW YOU FORGOT?” She screamed at me.

“I’m so sorry. Can we still have that lunch though?” 

“Is this a serious question, Mason? While I was getting ready, all I could think about was what you needed to tell me. Here’s what I needed to tell you. I like you. Okay. And I’m 100% damn sure you don’t feel the same. All you talk and care about is Melody. Melody this, Melody that. ‘DID YOU SEE HER TODAY?’ I love being your best friend and listening to your problems or whatever, but I can’t anymore. I’m sorry for blowing up on you. I’ll just go.”

“Mel- Josephine-”

Oh crap. I just messed up her name.. She looked at me with those “really bitch” eyes, and left. I was still in shock. Josephine Grace, my best friend, admitted that she likes me. I never realized how much I talked about Melody with her. Most of our conversations were about Melody. I just needed to tell someone, and she was always there for me.. I didn’t think I was out of hand. I didn’t want to be in a relationship with her, because I just didn’t want to risk ending our friendship. It’s too precious to just let go. I’ve grown such an amazing bond with her, and I’d rather get to know her even more, than just jump into liking her. One mistake I said, and she was gone. I didn’t know I had really hurt her.

Josephine’s POV

Wow. Mason almost called me Melody. Okay, yes I haven’t known him for too long, but he really meant a lot to me. I don’t think I should’ve told him. I was just upset with him, and now I risked losing him. Not only as some friend, but my best friend. It’s been a few days and I still haven’t contacted Mason. And sadly, he hasn’t called me either.. I must accept the fact that we were not meant to be. Maybe Mason and Melody will happen or not. I see her and Harry all the time. It gave me those high hopes that Mason would stop loving her, and start loving me. But it doesn’t matter. And whoever he ends up with, I’ll just try and be happy for him. Besides, Mason Jai & Josephine Grace, seemed like the perfect fit. Unlike Mason Jai & Melody Brooks. Who am I kidding. I should just stop and continue with my irrelevant life.

Mason’s POV

I felt bad for not calling Josephine back. Every time I look at my phone and see her name, I over think of what to stay and end up not calling. I don’t want to screw things up again so I waited for her to call. Stupid, right? I know. I even tried rehearsing what to say to her, but why do that? Shouldn’t it be natural to know how to apologize properly? The more I think about it, I remember what I had to say.

“Josephine.. I remember what I had to say.”

“Are you even talking to the right person? Are you sure you’re not going to forget?” she replied sarcastically.

“OKAY I GET IT. I MESSED UP PRETTY BADLY. JUST LET ME EXPLAIN GOODNESS GRACIOUS. I over thought what I had to say, so it lead to me forgetting. THEN, you were like demanding to hear what I had to say instead of waiting like I asked. Once you mentioned Melody’s name, I couldn’t help but repeat it. I knew I was talking to you Josephine, I just had way too much on my mind. So excuse me for cracking like that. Do you want to know now?”

“Of course I want to know.”

“Well first off, I wanted to take you out because it was our best friendiversary. Yeah, we’ve been friends for about 8 months or so, but it was still a long time, and you’re my only friend.”

“Aww, you actually remembered.”

What in the world.. SHE THOUGHT I FORGOT THIS. Oh no.

“Of course I remember, but that’s not the only thing I had to say to you. I really wanted to thank you for putting up with me. Haha, I sound like we’re together or something, but really. You’ve been there for me since day 1, and I didn’t think I had anyone to turn to. You really shaped me into a better person, and I love you for that. Happy Friendiversary Josephine! Sorry I messed up today.”

“Mason, it’s alright. Happy Friendiversary to you too. I haven’t met a guy so committed in a friendship, until I talked to you. You guided me into safe hands, and I could never ask for a better person. I put up with you, because you put up with me. Thank you so much. Sorry I was moody today. I just thought about too much, and I need to rest. I love you too Mason.”

After a long talk about practically everything, I could hear that she fell asleep. I couldn’t blame her. Today seemed like a long day, but I’m glad everything is fixed.
